Here's What Our Patients Say About Dr. Goodwin

My son fell at the camp and broke his arm. The camp told me it was not urgent. I picked him up and Arthritis & Sports was able to get him in on the same day and gave him a thorough examination, and he ended up having to go through surgery. Again, A&S was able to add him to the end of Dr. Goodwin’s surgery schedule the next day. The patience and flexibility and professionalism of A&S doctors and staff really made a big difference to my son and myself in a very stressful situation.

Dr. Goodwin is outstanding. I saw him for a couple of different issues, and he successfully treated all of them. One of them involved arthroscopic knee surgery to repair a torn meniscus. He did a great job, no pain, and a very quick recovery. I have 100% mobility in my knee now. He’s also a really nice guy and has a great bedside manner. I drive from inside the beltway to see him, and I will continue to see him for any future orthopedic issues.
